I am currently a college student on the path towards greater knowledge, and during my college career I will be enrolled in ARMY ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) at my school. Which leads me to my outrageous belief that the drinking age still has not been lowered to 18, and age of "adulthood" per-say, we also cannot: rent a hotel room, rent a car, legally own a hand gun, and many more insane laws. I found this amazing web page that may provide interesting material about this topic: http://www.chooseresponsibility.org/ The point I am trying to get to is that if my fellow American Soldiers are going off and dieing at the age of 18, why can we not sit down and tip back a cold one?
